–   HERE’S THE QUICK SUMMARY   –

Never in your wildest dreams would you think to find hidden in the picturesque highlands of Guatemala, a place surrounded with beautiful seductive mountains, sacred volcanoes from the mayan myths and mysterious healing properties that make this lake a worthy contestant of a place in today’s top wonders of the world.

DID YOU KNOW?

The most recent volcanic activity in the region was about 1.8 million years ago. This volcanic natural beauty culminated in the formation of the present lake caldera, creating the deepest lake in Central America.

A TRUE HISTORICAL PLACE

Where else are you going to find a place with an underwater mayan ritual city recently made public to the world by a documentary released by NatGeo called “Mayan Blue”.

The 2014 documentary made it famous and it is now know as the “Mayan Atlantis”. The first underwater exploration in Central America had its difficulties, but it was worth it.

They discovered 3 underwater islands for mayan rituals showing the possible role of Lake Atitlán Guatemala in the Mayan mythology. This is a perfect match with the 3 sacred volcanos and 3 stars over the lake in the Orion constellation that represent “Home”.

*The number 3 has always been relatad with the creation of the worlds.

MISTERIOUSLY UNIQUE

You’re going to love this…. there are very few places in the world with a cloud forrest, this magical lake is one of them. The cloudy forest is at the top of the San Pedro volcano and its home of the threatened species bird ‘The Horned Guan’ [Oreophasis derbianus].

AMAZING DIVERSE CULTURE

It is a place that combines cultural tourism with eco-tourism in a laid-back vacation setting. Its surrounded by many villages in which diverse Mayan culture is still prevalent and traditional dress is worn.

*Spanish: Lago de Atitlán [atiˈtlan]

How To Book The Perfect Place In Atitlan

Selecting the best hotel for you depends on what you like and type of vibe you are looking for. The lake is surrounded with many towns and all of them have different vibes and sizes. You can try different hotels and visit all towns since the longest trip from one town to another is just 30 to 40 minutes by boat (5 to 10 mins from one town to another). Boat is the best and easiest way to move around the lake.
